Gear nut
 

Still bought more than I sold! Sold:

Flamingo
1968
Mini-Me
Gefell 92

And a ton of guitar amps and pedals.

But I did buy more guitars than I sold. Ended up with a new Ric and Tele (which I'll probably sell).

Sold a few equipment at the beginning of the year, mainly to try new things.

Millenia HV3
Mytek 96 AD
Benchmark DAC-1

Now of course I regret it

It's an H3...not really a hummer.



I sold everything but my soul. Gotta keep something right?

For me some of why I didnt sell what I wanted to where things like this big ass 2 track that I want picked up. Crating it is just not worth it to me. Also I have a scamp rack
that someone wanted, but the harness wasn't labeled and I didnt want to send it out not being labeled and tested since I hadn't used it since I moved, so I put 1/4 connectors on the thing since that was what the buyer wanted and just never got a chance to test and label the thing. Oh well maybe in 07

They did you a favor by taking it back. Why would you want a piggy gas guzzler like that. Get a Cooper mini!

The Octopre has zero wiggle room in this regard. The proper setting will be "7.3". If you have it at "7.2." it will sound washed-out and wimpy. "7.4" will sound harsh and clippy. If you have the patience to find this magic number, you can get a full-throated and ballsy sound. I think maybe most people are erring on the high side, and from this flows the impression that it's ALWAYS harsh and clippy. And as you listen, as you're dialing in the gain, you don't hear the source getting "louder," you hear the "zone of amplifying" widen. It is some weird sh*t, for sure, but the thing is not worthless, it's just very, very touchy.

i completely agree....

It did get 20 mph, not excessive consumption. Mini Coopers are death machines around here, they don't do well here in the land of SUV's. Besides, they won't go where I want to go, away from everyone in the middle of nowhere. You need 4 wheel drive for that. I refuse to be restricted by the lack of freedom presented by goverment roads. Besides, Coopers can't jumb curbs.

Must...

Jeep's are great Cherokee's and Grand Cherokee's handle themselves off-road very well. Wranglers go anywhere, obviously.
Another great one for off-road and in town is the Nissan Xterra. Went out in the hills with a friend in one a week ago and I was surprised how well it handled the rough roads. It's very comfortable.
Other good options are the Nissan Murano and Infinity FX.

what did you SELL this year?

Not enough, so if you are looking for a Vetta II head, an H&K Zentera combo, Parker Fly Deluxe in Gold or a Rendano SG doubleneck copy, hit me up

Gear interested
 

Nothing.

I end up hoarding everything. I'm afraid if I sell it, I'm going to kick myself 6 months from now or 6 years from now -- why did I get rid of that? Damn I could use that now!
